Different Like Everyone Else

Michael Craig Martin isn’t like many other artists. Sine the 70’s he has been intrigued and occupied with the same technique of art. It is pop art, it is contemporary, it is vibrant, but it is not common.

His work is in no way natural but in every way necessary. Primarily the choice and use of color. Without the drastic hues the viewer would not be drawn to the simplicity and minimalism that Martin captures so uniquely well.   craig1999-0001commonhistory-conferenceweb
